A mother’s job is to keep her children safe.
Tess has always tried to be a good mother. Of course, there are things she wishes she’d done differently, but doesn’t everyone feel that way?
Then Emma, her youngest, is attacked on her way home from a party, plunging them into a living nightmare which only gets worse when the man responsible is set free
But what if she fails?
So when Tess sees the attacker in the street near their home, she is forced to take matters into her own hands. But blinded by her need to protect her daughter at any cost, might she end up putting her family in even greater danger?
There’s nothing she wouldn’t do to make it right . . .
Tessa’s 16 year old daughter, Emma, was attacked one night on her way home, a man had grabbed her from behind and tried to drag her away, thumping her on the head at the same time……luckily a woman saw what was happening and confronted the man and he ran off…..Frances took Emma home to Tessa and was a witness for the police….
There is a police lineup but both Emma and Frances could not pick out the man for definite, but one man matches the description and Tessa becomes certain it was him.
She starts to ‘stalk’ him on social media, even sending anonymous messages to him, saying she knows what he’s done….but in her fraught state of mind she makes a mistake and sends a message while logged into her genuine account….now he knows who she is…she just wants to protect her daughter….
Her beloved dog Dotty, is taken…….and she receives a message, just a whimpering!..Frances is there to offer support to them both….she knows just when she’s needed…!
Has Tessa made a mistake? Will the attacker find them? And is it who they think it is?
This is a marvellously twisted tale, with several possible suspects that will keep you turning those pages……there’s violence, tragedy, friendships, lies….and betrayal in this very clever psychological thriller….brilliant.
